BUt we definitely have reasons for gratitude, in abundance!
If you remember, last week, I was so excited with our new 'household', that I had created using this week's (week 6) scripture instead of the week 5 scripture. Instead of confusing myself, I am putting the correct week's creations in the correct dated blogposts (so you may have already seen this creation). If you want to see the creation I have just finished (using last week's scripture Ephesians 5:20), you'll have to pop back to the week 5 blogpost here. So here again is my week 6 creation in the right place, using 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8.
The digi of the Scripture, I have created myself, using 1 Corinthians 13 4-8, from the Contemporary English Version of the Bible. I think it is beautifully translated, and so clear!
I have used another fabulous vintage era image from Create with TLC. In keeping with my square based layouts, my image layer is matted only with a single square of tiny floral patterned paper. I created an 8x8 page from a distressed 'damask' pattern, which I thought looked like the sky and sand. I coloured the image layer with chalks for the background, emulating sky and grass, and the image itself with markers. I wanted to brighten the flowers with splashes of colour, but they were so tiny, I thought splashes of colour would be best introduced with the addition of other embellishments.... so I have added a ribbon of vine leaves, yes it is actually ribbon!) and paper flowers that I have coloured with SU markers to tone into the papers. I used wee brown flowers as well, (the rule of three!) to compliment the hand-coloured yellow flowers. After fixing the flowers down, I added buttons to their centres. Finally, some green pearls were added to the unadorned corners....
